President Moon Jae-in will hold a string of emergency meetings next week on COVID-19 and the economy.
On Monday, he will check the stability of the country's vaccination program and the overall response strategy.
The meeting will be attended by related officials, including the health minister and head of the KDCA.
On Thursday, Moon will chair an economy ministers' meeting to review the current economic situation and discuss relevant response measures.
It will be attended by the ministers of trade, labor, fisheries, and SMEs.
The Blue House said this latest itinerary is in line with the President's remarks that he'll concentrate on efforts to overcome COVID-19 and revive the economy following the ruling party's crushing defeat in the recent by-elections.
